We are delighted to announce our team has expanded to include two new members.
In March 2018, when Jim Holloway retired from CST, graduates Julie Webb and Robert Heaven joined as Administration Partners. Robert and Julie are highly experienced and versatile practitioners (see About us for more details) and keen to promote and develop CST’s professional expertise and knowledge base.

Anthea Millar and Sarah Parkin will continue as Tutor Partners, and will be presenting (along with CST Associate Julia Herrick) our exciting new Diploma 2018-2019 training programme starting in October (combining the previously separate Certificate and Diploma courses). Watch this space for details of further developments in 2018!

CST's travels

At ICASSI 2017 – the annual international Adlerian Summer School – which was held in Indianapolis USA, CST partner Anthea Millar was invited to be on the faculty, providing training for students and practitioners from around the world. The photo shows Anthea (middle of the back row) with some of the participants of her class, who came from as far afield as Canada, China, France, Israel, Korea, Singapore, Spain, Turkey, and the USA.

Earlier this year Anthea offered a supervision training for 40 enthusiastic participants at IPPA in Bucharest, Romania (she is in the second row, fifth from the left). Anthea will be off on her travels again in September 2017 giving training first in Canada, then in Ireland in October, followed by a week in Bulgaria in November. She feels very privileged to have the opportunity to work with and learn from colleagues from differing cultures, and it has been particularly exciting to see the developing interest in providing a more relational and restorative form of supervision in Eastern European countries.

CST at Supervision Conferences

In October 2016, Anthea Millar and Jim Holloway attended the Supervision Conference UK, organised in Bristol by Severn Talking Therapy. Keynote speaker Michael Carroll – giving his last talk before retiring – addressed the conference theme of Developing Dialogue in a Diverse World with great humour and wisdom. Jim Holloway and Steve Page delivered a workshop on 'Developing the Voice of Supervisors in BACP' which resulted in a consultation paper for BACP.

Sarah Parkin and Jim Holloway took part in A Spirit of Enquiry: Supervision, the Universe and Everything! – the bold title of the Supervision Conference UK 2015 held in York in October 2015 (organised as usual by Severn Talking Therapy), with keynote speaker Maria Gilbert and a stimulating choice of workshops.

The Supervision Conference UK 2014 (organised by Severn Talking Therapy) was held in Cambridge, with keynote speaker Robin Shohet presenting 'Ethics in Supervision: What's love got to do with it?'. Among several other well-known practitioners, Anthea Millar facilitated a workshop on 'Encouragement and Ethics: An Essential Partnership for Supervision'.

Anthea Millar and Jim Holloway attended the first Supervision Conference UK (formerly the British Association for Supervision Practice and Research Conference) in Bristol in October 2013. The theme was 'Evolving Supervision in a Changing World' with keynote speaker Peter Hawkins.

The theme of the final British Association for Supervision Practice and Research Conference (London 2012) was 'Critical Moments in Supervision'. Jim Holloway and Penny Henderson presented a workshop on 'Chewing on the Shadowy Stuff: Nutritious Moments in Supervision'. (BASPR evolved into the Supervision Conference UK, organised by Severn Talking Therapy, in 2013.)
